    Like the title says....


    Have these been ID'd?

    Was Chewie's the same as everyone else's?

    Are they readily available anywhere?


    Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks :D

    Chewie has the same headset...you can see Han's and Chewie's hanging in the cockpit after they blast off from Mos Eisley...Chewie just wears it on his left ear instead of right...

    aliens headset

    I think it's an RA150 Minilite. You can see it in this PDF:

    http://www.thales-acoustics.com/products/pdf/AAOverview.pdf

    If you go directly to the thales-acoustics.com site it redirects to racal.co.uk. Searching the Racal site for "RA150" and "minilite" each comes up with 0 results. Not surprising given the age of the product.

    I purchased one from the seller mentioned, and he even included the manual.

    Used in Alien w/o the rubber cup (around the mic element);
    used in Aliens w/o rubber cup & painted

    For me, it was worth the price for this obscure prop.

    They are also used by the Yavin Ops crew and are under the pilots helmets.
